Johns Hopkins wins, 2-1, in field hockey 1st round
Johns Hopkins won and Washington College lost in three overtimes during the first round of the Middle Atlantic Conference field hockey playoffs yesterday.
TTC At rainy Homewood Field, Beth Cariello, the team's top scorer, scored the winning goal off an assist by Kathy Herring, with 15 seconds left in the first half, and Johns Hopkins (9-3-2) edged visiting Lebanon Valley (8-7-2), 2-1.
Cariello, a freshman, also assisted on the team's first goal by Roxanne Tena, and now has 10 goals and two assists this season.
Jen Carlyle's goal in the 25th minute of overtime (one 10-minute period and successive 10-minute sudden-death periods) enabled No. 6 Muhlenberg (14-0) to get by No. 19 Washington College (10-3-1), 2-1, in Allentown, Pa.
Both sides had scored in the first half of regulation, the Mules after four minutes and Washington on a shot by Caroline Jensen with 28 seconds to go. Brigid DeVries was outstanding in the Washington goal and ended with 11 saves.
The home sides won the other two games, too, as Messiah (17-1), ranked No. 2 in Division III, defeated Juniata, 3-1, and Haverford stopped Drew, 2-1. Tomorrow's semifinals will have Haverford at Hopkins and Muhlenberg at Messiah.
LYNCHBURG, Va. -- Sean Helliwell and Brian Stevens provided Liberty University with goals in the first 10 minutes of the second half, and the Flames held on to defeat Navy (7-9-2), 2-1, on a muddy field made sloppy by a rainstorm. Navy senior captain Leon Wilson closed the gap 11 minutes later, when he scored his fourth goal of the season, converting a pass from Mark Strothkamp.
